About this deal

Still relatively young and attractive, Valeria and Enrico look more like brother and sister, with the same square jaws, abundant dark hair and cold stare, but they're actually married. In fact, they split up seven years previously but divorce was not legal in Italy until 1974, therefore they are still married, although Valeria lives with another man. Very solid, I enjoyed it more than the second installment, partially because the story was better built, partially because there was some comeuppance, some justice the police was able to serve in the end, unlike in the previous book.

At first, the body is thought to be of a male transvestite prostitute but when it’s identified as a married man and the director of the Bank of Verona, it seems that there is something more than just a prostituted murdered by a client. The best thing about this movie is Venice, shown in its less touristy, more intimate corners. Main characters Valeria and Enrico walk their way through the whole city without a specific reason, except promoting the city for your next holiday. But the city out of season is another matter. I saw it for the first time during a rainy and cold December, and fell in love with it forever. It is the last city on Earth built to human scale, and designed to satisfy human needs (including the need to be surrounded by beauty). "The Anonymous Venetian" does a very nice, understated job of sinking into the city and giving us a real sense of place. A must for couples that want to rescue their love. And a warning for the rest of mortals so they dont fall down into the well of total and inconsolable desperation.Marco, with maybe a walk across the Rialto thrown in. "The Anonymous Venetian" has its characters prowl through the passageways of the city's more isolated residential quarters, and there are a lot of cats and stones dripping with moss and arches leading into gloom and then out again to cross bridges.

First a disclaimer, that I'm returning to the earlier Brunetti novels and reading the ones I missed. So this was read after 21 others, although it is only #3 in the series. And I also have to admit that my very favorites are all within the last 10 books when there has been much deeper and "crux /core" peeled down character development. their way to Florence (that cramped warren of traffic jams) in the middle of July. Not surprisingly, they find the city crowded and the canals pungent. You can't expect a city of 250,000 inhabitants to It's rather dated in that AIDS is held to an entity definition, treatment that has rather changed in connotations. But the traipsing for inquiry is hardly different than on other cases. Just in that Guido meets many males in the sex trades here.I really like the characters of Brunetti and his family. This is the third book in the series and the third one I have read and I find my affection for the characters growing with each installment. I have never seen any of these actors before nor ever heard of the director. It's one of those unique masterpieces that appear suddenly in a flash of dazzling brightness - to never be repeated.

The astonishingly beautiful scenery, the most romantic music, the live drama are just perfect. Its European cinema at its best. No need for special effects or expensive sets. The city itself provides everything needed.One of those films which it almost hurts to see again, and still you can't see it many times enough. Already the second time you start crying from the beginning.

Brunetti, of course, will not be bought. He is an upright and honorable man who loves his wife and children and goes home at night to eat peaches and read from Tacitus' Annals of Imperial Rome. While his wife is gone, he cooks wonderful, healthy meals for himself and cleans up after himself. What a man! The August heat has driven many residents out of Venice and nearby mainland cities for vacations in cooler climes, so just as Commissario Guido Brunetti is about to take his family to the mountains, he is asked by the police in Mestre to take charge of a murder case; their own detectives are mostly away on leave. So Brunetti stays behind as his family go to the mountains. Paola is her usual "know it all" critique expert on the subject of gays and also makes a tuna sauce that sounds intriguing.It could be a mushy melodrama, it's a delicate treatment of the last day of a couple :they were married ,but even after divorce ,something remains who strangely looks like love ; not dwelling on the sordid side of live, the truth about the ex-husband is only revealed at the 50 th minute ( the pills and the injection disconcert the viewer though ). Their enigmatic conversations take place all over Venice, however, and there are a lot of locations you won't recognize unless you really Only two actors ,and it is much to their credit to sustain our interest throughout ;Florinda Bolkan was a beauty legend of the Italian cinema and American Tony Musante often worked in both country (notably in the excellent Dario Argento 's thriller "l'ucello dalle piume di cristallo"1967) .
